Cairns Connect Overview
A visit to North Queensland would not be complete without stopping at Paronella Park. Situated south west of Innisfail at Mena Creek is a Spanish Castle that will take you back in time to the 1930's and one man's dream. Paronella Park is difficult to describe. It was built as a tribute by Jose Paronella to his wife. Paronella Park is a collection of stunning buildings, castle like in appearance and surrounded by an incredible garden featuring over 7000 trees planted by Jose Paronella.

Most of the buildings are in a state of semi ruin after decades of ravaging floods and fires, but there is a truly magical feeling to Paronella Park. The current owner operators, Mark and Judy Evans are curators of this memorial. They have made it a welcoming place with Devonshire teas at The Cottage and well maintained picnic areas and walks through the gardens.

Paronella Park is highly recommended as a place to visit whilst in North Queensland. Day Tours are available from Cairns.

Note: Paronella Park has been featured on National and International Television documentaries as a truly unique place to visit.
